Press Release

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) was sworn into his third term in Congress. Rep. Lieu, a veteran, was first elected in 2014 and has since proudly served California’s 33rd Congressional District. In the 116th Congress, Rep. Lieu will sit on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He will also serve in House Leadership as a Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Co-Chair.

“Change is coming.

“For me, it’s the beginning of my third term in Congress representing the people of California’s 33rd district. It has been the honor of a lifetime to represent our community in Congress, and champion issues of critical importance to my constituents. I’m thankful for the chance to continue to represent the best district in the country.

“For our country, it’s a chance to set a new course. Americans sent the most diverse group of people to Congress in history—a reflection of our nation’s values. It was a direct repudiation of the hateful, fear-mongering rhetoric we regularly hear from the White House. The Democratic Majority will work for all people, and today that work begins.

“In the 116th Congress, we’ll have a lot on our plates but, no matter the issue, I will continue to champion the rule of law and the protection of our democratic institutions. I’ll fight to address climate change, protect the cybersecurity of consumers, address homelessness in our communities, and restore faith in America around the globe.

“Central to the House’s role in government is empowering the people we represent. We as the new Majority are committed to doing just that. I look forward to working with and hearing from my constituents as their representative and from broader swaths of the country as DPCC Co-Chair in House Leadership.”
